Get Changed Theatre Company is a diverse and welcoming group, made up of our performance team (Inspiring Arts, our performers and supporting volunteers) and our small in-house team, overseen by a committee of voluntary trustees.
Our Performance Team
Get Changed Theatre Company have been working with Inspiring Arts for many years. They are contracted to deliver our workshops and performances.
Jules leads the weekly workshop each Wednesday and works tirelessly to ensure that our participants receive high quality sessions, as well as devising the ideas for the show & leading on the design of the shows.
Peter organises all of our amazing Theatre performances, bringing in Theatre professionals to ensure that lighting, sound, production and direction is of the highest quality, not to mention finding amazing professional actors to join the group for rehearsals and performances.
Our Artists and Performers
Every Wednesday we meet at the Ockment Centre in Okehampton. These sessions run from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Ideas are presented and often themed, during the sessions Jules is able to direct and use these ideas to focus on different skills, taking into account the individual needs and talents of our artists. These emerging ideas develop and are then used in the next production.
Jules, is the artistic director and is supported by Penny and the talented support workers to enable the artists to be actively involved allowing them all to particiapte and contribute their ideas – some very ridiculuous ideas!
It is also a shared space for celebrating and sharing news, having lunch and just catching up with our friends.

Volunteers are a crucial part to the success of Get Changed Theatre Company. We have been very fortunate with the volunteers past and present who have supported our weekly workshops.
If you are interested in theatre, dance and drama, or if you are interested in working with people with learning difficulties, and you can dedicate your time every Wednesday then please get in touch.
Our In-House Team
Get Changed Theatre Company has a small in-house team made up of Sunita, our administrator, and Penny, our project worker who oversees every workshop.
We have a small team of six very dedicated Trustees, who volunteer their time each month. We meet to discuss the governance of Get Changed Theatre Company, ensuring that the charity is run well and that we are securing finances for our productions. The breadth of experience amongst the trustees and Inspiring Arts colleagues is wide and varied.
